Maybe this is just crazy talk, but couldn't you try and generate your sync signal with a bi-stable oscillator, you'd want to watch that with the MCU so that you don't keep sending data as your sync goes off, if not using the oscillator directly, you could use it to keep track of were you are in your output (send the sync with the MCU, but use the oscillator to time everything right.

(Please excuse any tyops I've made, it's late, and it's hard for me to keep up with my high standard of typing when I'm tired.)

I can't find ANY datasheets on this, and I don't think there's any examples on how to use it with the Arduino. (I'm talking about the NTE74HC299) It also has 20 pins so trying guess based on the 74HC595 Tutorial isn't gonna work.

Edit:

Actually, I found a datasheet for the thing (I think) but being the not electrical engineer I am, I have no idea what it means. http://www.ortodoxism.ro/datasheets/philips/74HC_HCT299_CNV_2.pdf

I just got my Arduino today, so I didn't know this at first either, but you're supposed to reset the atmega right before you "upload" your code to the atmega.

Ah, thanks. I'm not much of an electrical engineer (or tinkererer or such). I'm usually playing around in the magical land of computering.

The title does pretty much explain my problem.

All of my digital pins are taken up powering (an admittedly trivial) set of LEDs, and I want to be sure I can do this before I order a bunch of parts (I'm really crazy about not buying stuff I'm not gonna use, I this this might be my main tinkererering problem (I also have a severe parentheses overuse problem))
